I spent an enjoyable day watching the Test Match on TV. It does not look as though the Headingly wicket is capable of producing a result. The Pakistani attack is very poor with even the England tail-enders looking comfortable, and certainly it is unlikely to bowl England out twice, but England bowled too short, with only Monty Panesar looking penetrative. There are a lot of players on both sides out injured, so this may not be a fair comparison. Pakistan outplayed England on their home turf, but equally apart from their middle order,they do not have the skills for playing in England.
The umpiring has not really been first class either, with Pakistan suffering more.
Pietersen was outstanding again today and Bell grafted well for his ton.
